Tottenham are looking to recruit Leicester City’s James Madison (25).
The Boot Room, a British media outlet, quoted Dean Jones, a transfer market expert, on the 18th (Korea Standard Time) and said, “Medison can join Tottenham.”
“In April, Tottenham and Arsenal said they wanted to recruit Madison. However, Leicester City has set Medison’s transfer fee at (60 million (about 원94.2 billion).
Tottenham and Madison have recently reconnected. Coach Antonio Conte has been satisfied with the recruitment so far. “We plan to start recruiting more before the transfer market closes,” he said.
According to Jones, Madison is open to the transfer. However, he explained that he had to pay a large transfer fee. “Medison has an ambition to move forward. I am ready to grow further. I think he will accept a move to Tottenham.
He then analyzed, “However, if Tottenham does not offer a huge amount of money, I am not sure that the opportunity will open.”
Madison, who has been playing for Leicester City since the 2018-19 season, is a player who can lead the attack through excellent passes and kick skills. You can help your teammates with a sharp pass or break the defense with an accurate kick.
It was the best year of the 2021-22 season. He achieved the most offensive points since his debut. He scored 18 goals and 12 assists in 53 games. He showed a clear presence as he started 28 out of 35 Premier League games.
Tottenham was able to manage stable attacks with Christian Eriksen in the past. There has been a thirst on the midfielder side since he left. Giovanni Lo Celso tried to be appointed, but the possibility of a transfer increased with regret. This is why Tottenham is trying to reinforce the midfield with Madison.
Madison’s contract ends in June 2024. “The Boot Room” predicted, “If Tottenham recruits Madison, it will be the most destructive offensive lineup in the Premier League.”
